The opposite hitter from Argentina, Carla Castiglione, joined fourth ranked team in the Swiss Championship last season, VFM Franches-Montagnes.



Thus, the Swiss team added another international to its roster for the season 2016/2017, creating a true ‘foreign legion’.

Carla Castiglione (arrived to Franches-Montagnes from Club Atlético San Lorenzo de Almagro), a younger sister of more famous Yael Castiglione, will have a compatriot in her new team – middle blocker Florencia Busquets, who returned after suffering illness and having short episode in Club Atlético Boca Juniors.

Before Castiglione, Franches-Montagnes hired two American youngsters straight from their university – opposite Kaylin Squyres (University of California Davis) and setter Nicole Edelman (University of Colorado Boulder), while German middle blocker Eva Michalski renewed.

Franches-Montagnes want to end domination of Volero Zürich in Swiss Championship, who took 11 of last 12 titles.
